Seeking 4 actors, female, male for paid table reading (PCC Cascade, North Portland)

Seeking 4 actors for a paid table reading on Thursday, November 19th, 6pm to 8:00pm

1. Carinne, female 30s, lead character (more information below)

2. David, male 40s, lead character (more information below)

3. Wendy, female 40s, support character (more information below)

4. Narrator (reading action lines and sluglines), any gender, any age -- this is a critical role since the dialogue doesn't explain the entire story. The actor reading this role should have good timing and have a sense for the context and mood of these lines.

Pay for each role is $50 and dinner is provided.

This is the first table reading of "Carinne's Story", an original feature-length screenplay written by Portland writer/filmmaker/instructor Greg Kerr.

Tagline: Inspired by the poems of Edgar Allan Poe, Carinne's Story is a dark romantic story within a story.

Synopsis: As writing professor David Parker becomes captivated by Carinne, his most gifted student, they take on the role as each other's muses, and enter into a relationship that unfolds like their dark writing. But true to their stories, it's a relationship that cannot last.

The complete screenplay will be provided in advance to actors chosen to participate.

Reading scheduled for Thursday, November 19, 2011 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Portland Community College Cascade Campus, Albina and Killingsworth - MAHB Room 215

Contact Greg Kerr at this link to express interest and for more information:

Please include in your message a link(s) to your headshot, resume, website and information about your acting experience.

Other information:

"Carinne's Story" is Dark Romanticism, Drama, Narrative Fiction.

The reading will be
- filmed (with primary attention to the lead actors) and excerpts will be put on the website.
- viewed by Multimedia writing students from Portland Community College (about 25 students will be in attendance to critique the script, not the actors)

Description of Roles:

She is a woman in her 30s and a writing student who has become attracted to her writing instructor, David. She is a gifted writer who tends toward dark material drawn from her past -- she's an orphan who was in and out of foster homes as a child until she finally ran away.

She has a varied and complicated past. She suffers from bi-polar disorder and has medication. She knows that the medication dulls her senses and adversely affects her ability to write, so she stops taking it.

He is a man in his 40s who is a popular writing instructor at a local community college. Outside of his professional world, he is very much living a solitary life. He suffers with depression and attention deficit disorder which leave him isolated from others and without the ability to complete his own stories. He has difficulty being in crowds: ironic for a person who's profession is teaching.

He's also very lonely and when Carinne comes into his life, he is swept away by her vibrant personality and brilliant prose.

This excerpt from the script provides some information about the relationship between Carinne and David:


She is a woman in her 40s and a colleague of David's in the writing department. She likes David very much, but finds him difficult to get to know. She is also very competitive with David in their professional relationship. She's the level-headed friend with whom David shares his problems.

Two Actors Needed for Student Film (Newberg, OR)

We are in need of two actors for Pushing 80, a 10min student film about a car-thief gang of five who are raiding a small town of specific vintage cars for a car collector. They do this untraditionally by overtaking the car as it's driving down the road. The gang meets its match in the form of a 65-year-old grandma in a very expensive-looking old car.

The two roles we are looking to fill are:

Felix is the ring leader of the gang who has the final say in the discussions for the gang. However, he gets his instructions from from a higher up boss. He has been doing this for years now and is confident in his skills and in his gang's abilities. Felix is a clean cut 30 year old. He does all the thinking, but sometimes his anger comes out and dictates his discussions. Felix also feels that he must protect the new girl Scarlet.

Milles is part of the car thief gang and is the right hand man to the ring leader, Felix. He is reserved but has a friendly relationship with the whole gang. He is a 27 year old who has a strong sense of loyalty towards his fellow car thieves, but tends to see his "work" as just another job, non emotional towards their victims.

This is a non-paying gig but we will provide meals during long shoot days, a DVD of the film will be provided when it's done and also great seats at the premeire.

We are planning on shooting the weekends of Nov. 11-13, 18-20.

Please email me with any questions and to set up an audition in the next couple days. We will be auditioning Nov. 1(today) at 3-4pm and Nov. 2 at 9-10pm at the George Fox University Portland Center. But contact us if you really want to audtion but those times don't work for you.
